Looking for a healthy, tasty treat to satisfy those sweets craving? This protein acai bowl from Costco is a MUST have. It requires very little prep time, and it’s absolutely delicious. You can find it in the freezer section of Costco by the frozen fruits, and it comes in a pack of 6 bowls, along with toppings, and they’re gluten-free and vegan.
I like to blend mind with nut butter and protein (hence the protein in the title), and treat myself after a workout, or when I’m craving a sweet treat.
Not to mention, it’s packed with a ton of antioxidants and nutrients. Acai berries have been linked to all sorts of health benefits, including (but not limited to) improved cognitive function, improved cardiovascular health, anti-inflammatory properties within the body, improved cholesterol, decreased risk of cancer, improved immune function, and lower blood sugar levels. Again – just to name a few.
They’re also nutrient-dense, meaning the nutrient level per calorie is high (that’s a good thing).
My favorite part about this recipe is that it’s SO macro-friendly (I hate that term because almost anything can be “macro-friendly” as long as it fits your macros), meaning that it’s not super high carb, super high fat (it’s only higher than some options because of the nut butter, but it’s a healthy fat so it’s also going to help you stay feeling full, for longer), and it’s packed with protein when you add that scoop.
